McIver Case

Seattle City Councilmember Richard McIver faces trial for fourth degree domestic assault Dec. 10. This week a judge ruled that the press could obtain police documents, including the recording of a 911 conversation and witness statements. The judge denied release of a patrol car recording of Councilmember McIver.

Mr. McIver's attorney, Todd Maybrown, argued against the release of the documents because the release would violate the privacy of McIver and his wife and the pretrial publicity might make the trial unfair. He says that McIver is not guilty.
